|North Shore Sunday recently conducted an interview with former L.A. GUNS and current BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION guitarist Tracii Guns. Here's the part where he talks about Axl:
North Shore Sunday: Along the way you co-founded GUNS N' ROSES. How long were you in GUNS N' ROSES?
Tracii Guns: "Well, Axl started singing in L.A. GUNS when I was around 18, then we changed into GUNS N' ROSES for about a year. I think I split when I was 19, right before I turned 20 and got back into L.A. GUNS. So I did it for about a year."
North Shore Sunday: What caused the split with Axl?
Tracii Guns: "It just wasn't fun. When you're a teenager the last thing I was interested in was this really ... Axl was very volatile all of a sudden."
North Shore Sunday: Axl volatile? That doesn't sound too surprising.
Tracii Guns: "Yeah, but I lived with him for two years before that happened and he wasn't. So it was a real shock and I was the first one to run away from him. I guess I should have hung around for an extra year."
